ICC Course Helps Students Prepare for National ACT Exam

Illinois Central College Youth Programs is once again offering an ACT Review course as well as an optional writing review to prepare students for the National ACT Exam. The ACT Exam is taken by Illinois high school juniors and is used as a “college-entrance exam” for many colleges.

The review course consists of four 3-hour sessions and an optional 2-hour writing review. The review sessions include test-taking strategies and techniques as well as a review of English, math, science, and reading materials similar to that covered by the exam. Participants also take short practice tests in all subject areas. All sessions are 6 – 9 p.m. Cost for the course is $85 (includes textbook and classroom materials).

An optional writing review offers students specialized preparation for the optional ACT Writing test. The review session covers basic writing skills as well as techniques for responding to the writing prompts on the test. This session is 6 – 8 p.m. and costs $27 (includes student guide and classroom materials).
